Your body can be trained to fight cancer

Homeopathic physicians using IPT cancer treatments, however, are concerned with what happens after tests show the cancer is gone.

by Dr. Frank George — 

We all have cancer inside us; it’s just a question of how much. When the number of cells reaches a certain point, the cancer can be felt, measured or seen on a scan.

Think of the immune system as a bunch of soldiers. A new enemy appears on the horizon — let’s say a flu virus that wasn’t there yesterday. The commanding general yells, “Charge!” and millions of white blood cells go on the attack.

But since cancer cells have usually been around for years, the immune system’s general says, “Oh heck, it’s just you guys again; we’ve seen you before — no big deal.” Thus, the army’s response is minimal.

In medical parlance, the adoptive part of the immune system is out of balance. In most cancer patients the B-cell side is overactive, and the T-cell side is underactive.

Using standard chemo and radiation is similar to the consultant coming into a company to orchestrate a turnaround. When the consultant leaves, people have been fired, but the original management team that created the problem is still on the job. They haven’t had time to retrain staff, and develop or institute different policies.

Homeopathic physicians using IPT cancer treatments, however, are concerned with what happens after tests show the cancer is gone. IPT, or insulin potentiated therapy, is a cancer treatment that uses insulin to open the cells so they absorb the drugs. In this way, about one-tenth the traditional amount of chemo is needed to get the job done. IPT does not flood the body with large quantities of harsh drugs.

IPT practitioners recognize that at the end of the treatment, the cancer is not gone; it’s just no longer detectable. And now the body is on its own. The immune system must be rebalanced and retrained to perceive the cancer cells as foreign and attack them.

First, we need to reduce the overactive B side and strengthen the underactive T side. IPT helps to restrain the overactive B-cells side of the system. Many different kinds of T-cell modifiers can be given by injection or as supplements.

Mistletoe, for example, is a homeopathic preparation that can be used to strengthen the innate side of the immune system. Mushroom and thymus extracts can be given to boost anti-tumor immunity.

It is important for those who have had cancer to remove any foreign body elements that suppress the immune system — root canals, infected tonsils and mercury fillings, to name a few. For example, IPT physicians may also consider chelation to remove heavy metals that build up in all of us over the years.

A healthy terrain and strong immune system are the best defense against the return of cancer.
